Whether a cabin in the woods, an urban condo, or a waterfront estate, home is where we get our start, where we end our day, where we are safe-home is where we can truly belong. Over the 20+ years I've been in the real estate business I've taken great pleasure in helping buyers and sellers experience the magic of home. To me the experience includes the entire process, from our first meeting to delivering the keys to providing post sale support and advice.
After attending UCLA for two years, I transferred to the University of Washington, where I received my B.A. in business. I went on to obtain my law degree from the University of Puget Sound School of Law (now Seattle University). While there I was a member of the National Moot Court team and was one of three students nominated for the prestigious Metzgar Award (a legal writing honor). I was admitted to practice law in Washington in 1986 and specialized in sophisticated tax planning and business transactions for ten years. Many of the skills I developed as a practicing lawyer have proven invaluable to my real estate clients--savvy negotiation, effective communication both orally and in writing, issue identification, tenacity and creative problem solving. The practice of law instilled in me an ethic of hard work and tireless effort toward accomplishing my clients' goals. It also taught me to protect and advocate for my clients at all times.
It takes experience to understand how to market a home to attract the right buyer at the right price. My many years in the real estate business have given me the ability to quickly assess the market for a particular home and develop a marketing plan unique to that home. This is especially important in a constantly changing marketplace. Similarly I am able to quickly grasp the wants and needs of buyers and provide focus to the home buying process. It has been my experience that the one thing people today want more of is time. By providing service that's remarkable I save my clients time and make the real estate experience seem effortless.
